Alternative Therapies


Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that has been used in healing for thousands of years. This, safe, non-invasive alternative therapy encourages the body to heal itself or produce a healing response.

Very fine, sterile needles are inserted into the skin and underlying tissue at specific locations on the body, known as “points” to stimulate a response. Each point stimulates a physiological effect. This can include: relieving muscle spasms, increasing blood circulation, stimulating nerves and a release in certain hormones.

Acupuncture can be used to help treat a variety of conditions including: arthritis, weakness, degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis, neurologic diseases and much more.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is another non-invasive, safe and painless treatment that can be used on its own or along with conventional treatment.

You may imagine a hot-red light, but laser therapy utilizes light on a very low setting to promote and stimulate the healing process by deeply penetrating tissue without damaging it. The laser emission is a gentle, warm, soothing sensation that most-often relaxes the pet.

When laser energy is absorbed by injured cells, the interaction provides both instant and long-lasting pain relief. The release of endorphins stimulates cells resulting in faster and more compete healing.

At times, results and relief can begin to be seen within hours or just a few sessions, depending on your pet and the condition being treated.

Laser therapy can be used for: arthritis, post-surgical pain relief, rehabilitation, degenerative joint disease, torn-muscles and more!

  • Rockville Centre, Garden City, Freeport, Baldwin, Uniondale, West Hempstead, Franklin Square, East Meadow, and neighboring towns in Nassau County, Long Island, New York
  • What a thorough, caring, and knowledgeable staff! I felt like Scarlett (my cat) got compassionate and focused care. My neighbor raved about Dr. Wyler and now I know why...but the entire staff displayed over the top attentiveness! Go there, everyone!
  • I have been going to Animal Medical Hospital for many, many years, and have had several pets treated by Dr. Douglas Wyler. He has always given them the best of care, and keeps me informed about what is going on with them. He and all the staff are just wonderful - Lisa, especially, has been so helpful! I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable veterinarian!
  • We have been going to Whitestone Vet Care for over 10 years now. Our dog Twister is now 11 years old and due to the wonderful care she has received from Dr.Wyler and his staff over the years, she is as healthy and happy as a spring chicken.
  • This is my 1st dog and I just love this place. They are willing to answer all my questions and concerns. I never have to wait long and everyone is so loving and caring. I feel confident my Dog Max is being care for well.
  • Very satisfied with the care my cat, Sunkiss received. The technicians, veterinarian, and staff, were very professional, friendly, and concerned about her problem. Used them for my other tabby, Tiger; who had a grocery list of problems; but lived a comfortable life to the age of 16.5 years.
